Stuff just got real. Had my draft last night.

Boy it's a long wait between the first pick and the 20th. Lots of good players went off the board in between.

Projected 3rd out of 10 afterward. Really hoping old man Rodgers stays in one piece this year.

Surprised McCaffrey lasted until the 20th pick.

Our draft was Sunday night, got an A+ for the draft, but who knows what will happen during the season.  Kind of funny considering I drafted Lamar Miller and Andrew Luck towards the end, didn't realize one was hurt and the other retired.  I suck at fantasy football...

He didn't. I took him first overall. 

Barkley was higher ranked, but I really don't trust the Giants. Was also pretty tempted to take Kamara as well, but had to deny my brother, picking third, McCaffrey

Makes more sense, I mis-read your post.

Ready for my packers to get back to the playoffs,  hopefully, a healthy Rodgers for a full season will do

Fantasy draft was earlier today, got plans to watch the game tomorrow with some friends.  One of them will be getting the best pizza in Southern California for us to eat with the game, too. 

That reminds me, I need to do my golf practice tomorrow morning since I won't be in condition to do so in the evening.

My QB 1, so I'll definitely second that. 

However, I got a bit of a situation here with those Bears. At the moment, Jameis Winston is projecting higher against San Francisco. It seems almost blasphemous to sit a future hall of famer, but that seems to make sense here in week one.

Go Pack go!

You fantasy guys may want your own separate thread.  Never understood the attraction of rooting for a bunch of individual players who aren’t on the same team, but to each his own.

As a Packer fan since before they hired Lombardi, no difficulty in saying GO, PACK, GO!

Well ... A a couple of things.

1) When you grow up in Bengal country, the business of pulling for one specific team becomes very overrated. Having an interest in multiple games frees you from watching some truly awful football games.

2) My guys keep it low stakes, but the winner does get $$$ at the end of the season.

As a lifelong Browns fan, it's weird to have expectations going into a season. 

I'm excited and don't think it's a stretch to say that the Browns could be the best team in the division and should definitely be in the playoff hunt

I think both Baltimore and Pittsburgh are better teams in that division. But you never know. The Browns could definitely be 8 or 9 win team, though. Which more than what you could say about them for literally decades.

Realistically Pittsburgh will probably be a few wins better than the Browns, but I'm not convinced about Baltimore. I think the Browns have both a better offense and defense than the Ravens. The Ravens lost a lot on defense, (Terrell Suggs, CJ Mosley, and Eric Weddle) have a pretty weak pass rush, and I'd much rather have Baker Mayfield over Lamar Jackson.

 I’ve actually become a bit of a Browns fan, just because I appreciate the loyalty and devotion of the Browns fans themselves!

It’s a stretch.

I think the Ravens are going to be a top 5 unit like they were last year, despite the fact their pass rush does indeed look weak. Mosley and Weddle are loses, but Suggs has been declining. They got Earl Thomas now.  Their offense is going to gobble up so much clock that i think teams will have to pass on them more, and they got a bunch of ballhawks in the secondary.

Cleveland's offensive skill positions are obviously pretty darn good. Everyone knows that Myles Garrett is a beast and there are some solid players around him on defense.  The big concerns are the OL and the depth on defense.

The Browns ought to at least have a winning record this year. If the offensive line overachieves and the team stays healthy, the Browns may do better than that.

How so?

ESPN's projections

Steelers 9-7 36.6% to win division, 51.4% to make playoffs

Browns 8-8 31% to win division, 46% to make playoffs

Ravens 8-8 26.5% to win division, 40.3% to make playoffs

I think any of those teams could win the division and all 3 could be in the playoff hunt.
